Past PhD supervision

I was co-supervisor of the PhD work carried out by Ferdous Ruknul, at UNESCO-IHE Institute for Water Education (Delft, NL). Ferdous defended his PhD (funded by the Dutch Research Council), in January 2020. 

Ferdous analyzed the feedback dynamics between population and flooding in the lower reach of the Jamuna floodplain, in Bangladesh, following a sociohydrological approach based on empirical evidence.
